Disaster Preparedness Guide

Website Only:

Natural disasters are not fun for anyone. Unfortunately, they can be especially traumatizing for seniors. Older people are more frail and less mobile, making it a challenge for them to respond quickly. They may not always have the help they need immediately when they need it to escape a danger zone. The thought is frightening, but the good news is that there are plenty of things you can do to prepare yourself for possible emergencies if you’re a senior. If you’re a caretaker or a family member of a senior, you can also take measures to help him/her stay safe during dangerous natural disasters. This guide will cover the common types of emergencies that family and caregivers of seniors should be aware of, tips for helping the elderly evacuate when needed, and a handy checklist of items to have and bring with you in the event of an emergency.

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that attacks the mesothelium, which is the inner lining that surrounds the organs. The only known cause of this disease is asbestos exposure. (website 2).
Finding the best legal representation is a crucial part of any asbestos-related case. Retaining a general practice lawyer or an attorney who isn’t experienced in asbestos and mesothelioma lawsuits is never recommended, as these types of cases can be very complex. (website 3)
